Starting from Gate 14 on Lower North East Road, Houghton, this walk takes you on a circuit via the Range Road South, Ranger's Rocky Revenge and Newsom tracks. If you'll be walking here during the summer months, pay attention to shrubs with white blossoms and smell sweet. This is Bursaria Spinosa, the plant this walk was named after. Along the trail, walkers are rewarded with several beautiful city views. There is clear signage throughout, including detailed, informative displays around the nursery ruins. Most of the loop is on clear walking trails with a gentle gradient, with some sections that are slightly steeper and more technical. Sturdy shoes are recommended, as there are loose rocks on the ground in some areas. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
